We have a really tight budget...

Posted on June 11, 2014 at 2:25 PM

Contrary to popular belief, a wedding doesn't have to cost tens of thousands of dollars to be stunning and absolutely unforgettable.  There may be some negotiations and challenges to face, but anything is possible with the right set of eyes and the knowledge and guidance you need.

Establish your priorities:  In other words, what aspects of the day are most important to you i.e. photographs, flowers, food...what specific parts of the day should have concentration of your funds.

Gather your resources:  Establish an overall budget of what you both feel comfortable spending on your big day, keeping in mind that though the day is one of the most important moments of your life...your life will still be there the day after.  Don't go into your marriage with a huge debt from your wedding day.

If funds are limited:  Look for venues that include as much as possible in their packages.  So instead of looking at venues that basically just provide the shell, look for those that include things like tables and chairs, linens, ceremony etc.  The more you have to bring in from the outside, the higher and higher your cost is going to climb.  Look also to eliminate small extra's that won't be noticed...expensive favors, extensive cocktail hour foods etc.

Consider alternatives:  Speak to your planner for ways to accomplish the look and feel you are dreaming of in a different way.  For example, a recent bride of ours dreamed of a big outdoor wedding in a garden setting.  The budget just wouldn't allow for all the rentals etc. that would have been needed, so we were able to find her a beautiful venue with sprawling gardens on site where the bride and groom could do all of their portraits and a deck overlooking them where the guests could enjoy their cocktail hour.  The reception space itself had floor to ceiling windows so the room creating much the same feeling.  The venue, as opposed to the outdoor site, provided an all inclusive package that fit perfectly into the couple's budget.
